Master Gardeners will be at the Dakota County Fair Monday, August 7 – Sunday, August 13 offering you and your family the opportunity to tour and learn about the Heritage Village gardens, explore the Children’s Garden and get your gardening questions answered.
This year we are featuring a Dr. Seuss theme – “Oh the Gardens You’ll Grow!” based on the Seuss classic, “Oh the Places You’ll Go!” The Garden has Seussian accents and brightly colored stepping stones that lead you on your self-guided, short walking tour. Highlights include a sensory area, complete with a Seuss- themed bench to sit and rest a while, areas with bright and sunny plants and dark and black plants, (to name just a few), and a covered bridge too.
There will be “Bingo Cards” for kids to fill out by locating certain plants and sticker rewards. As always, the Children’s Garden, sponsored by the Dakota County Master Gardeners, and it’s activities are entirely free and fun for all. Please join us Monday – Saturday from 10 AM – 8 PM and Sunday from 10 AM – 6 PM.
Master Gardeners will be in the Heritage Village gardens to answer questions from 4:30 7:30 Monday through Friday and offering tours of the gardens from 5:30 – 6:30 PM.
Get your gardening questions answered at the Ask a Master Gardener table located adjacent to the Children’s Garden. Master Gardeners will be available every day of the fair at the following times. See you at the Fair!
